'Nation Building' is a real forgotten gem from the late '70s
and among the very best Afro-beat disco LP's ever. BLO's
founder and guitarist Berkely Ike Jones is one of the icons of
the Nigerian rock scene. He also played with many other bands
and contributed to f.i. Ofege's 'Try And Love' album and
recordings of artists s.a. Steve Black, Lijadu Sisters, Tee
Mac, Kris Okotie, Sonny Okosun's Ozziddi, 'Blackman' Akeeb
Kareem, Mixed Grill, Don Bruce & The Angels and Felix Lebarty.
He also toured with Ginger Baker. 'Nation Building' is his solo
LP from the late 1970s, released on Skylark Records. The original LP is extremely rare and very expensive, so this is
your chance to grab a copy at a normal price.

Also available: NATION BUILDING (CD).
